Andrew Gillum raised $1 million in 24 hours after winning primary
Aug 31, 2018, 01:31
One day after Florida's GOP nominee for governor, Rep. Ron DeSantis, ignited a storm of controversy after using the phrase "monkey this up" when asked a question about his opponent in November, a member of DeSantis' own party is calling on the representative to apologize.
"The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state", DeSantis said of Gillum, who is African American. Out of the 743 Florida voters surveyed, 48% chose Gillum, while just 43% chose DeSantis. "Sounds like this guy wants to be president".
"It's very clear that Mr. DeSantis is taking a page directly from the campaign manual of Donald Trump", Gillum said while speaking to Fox host Shepard Smith.
Andrew Gillum, who won the Democratic primary for Florida governor in a stunning upset Tuesday, raised $1 million in the first 24 hours after his nomination, according to spokesperson Geoff Burgan.
"Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses", said a spokesperson for the candidate. "To characterize it as anything else is absurd", his spokesman Stephen Lawson said. "I don't think there's any other way to interpret it". "In the handbook of Donald Trump, they no longer do whistle calls".
Henry Rodgers said that DeSantis's comments, in which he warned Florida voters not to "monkey this up" by voting for his Democratic opponent, were "absolutely ridiculous".
